Termites

In South East Queensland 1 in 3 homes will be attacked by termites, causing more damage than fire or flood.

Your general house insurance policy does not cover termite damage and if undetected the subterranean termite can cause extensive structural damage to your home.

Annual termite inspections and/or a termite preventative treatment will give you peace of mind and help ensure the security of your largest investment, not mention save you thousands of dollars in household repairs.

If you believe you have Termites, what do you do? Here a few steps to take to ensure your home is safe until a professional arrives.

  1. First thing to do is call a professional.
  2. Don't bother them. If you have found what you believe to be a Termite issue, leave them, cover the light up (with some tape) and call.
  3. Don't go looking for more. We will do a full inspection of your house once we're there.
